SSS ‘Celebrate You Release’ Filigree Message Circle Die with MB Flower Dies…

It’s time for a NEW release from Simon Says Stamp! They sent me their new Filigree Message Circle die to play with.  Kinda fitting since it was designed by Memory Box.

So I set to work and used a couple Memory Box flower dies too!

I used sentiments from the SSS last release, Tiny Words Encouragement clear stamp set. Links below…

I wanted to embellish the circle so I diecut the NEW Memory Box Daisy Silhouette die in white and colored with Copic Sketch markers.

YG17 Matches Taylored Expressions Peapod cardstock perfectly!  I’ll link below.

Here’s a top view because there is dimension to the card! 😀

The top layer is Taylored Expressions Toffee cardstock.

A close up…I think this picture captures the sweetness of the card the best! 😀

Next photo, the cards together…a variety of things you can do with this die.  Use your other circle dies to frame it etc. My white die cut panel is popped up to the card base with foam mounting tape and the kraft die cut panel is adhered directly to the card base.

I have this Lawn Fawn Inside Out Circle die set and love how it framed this Filigree Message Circle die.

I wanted to embellish with flowers again and liked the idea of tulips cuz it’s May and tulips are big in the area we live.

This is the Memory Box Springtime Tulips die. I clipped out the tulips and used them without the circle they come with.

A top view… I ink blended the flower parts that come with the die to back the tulips, with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide Ink and the mini ink blending tool.

I ink blended the card base with Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink.

The leaves are inked with Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink.


Sweet, feminine cards that anyone would enjoy receiving.  YAY!

Memory Box NEW Brilliant Sunflower Die Cards…

Hi everyone!  Here’s what I’ve been doing so far this week.  The new dies from Memory Box arrived and I got busy!

I’ve always liked sunflowers and holly hocks.  I suppose because they look free spirited! haha

For this card, I used the NEW Brilliant Sunflower and added the square frame from the Splendid Rose Frame from this year’s earlier release.  I LOVE how these mix and match!

I made a short video of how I emboss the detail in the sunflower head…watch it here or on You Tube.

 

I really like how embossing deepens the detail.

I inked edges with a little Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and the mini round ink blending tools.

I colored the center of the embossed yellow piece with color pencil and added white dots with a white gel pen.

Some quick die piecing in the corners….heat embossed sentiment is from the NEW Memory Box Big and Little Words clear stamp set. It’s made to coordinate with some of the other new dies too so you’ll be seeing it used a lot! yay!

Stamped with Versamark, in the MISTI stamping tool.

You brighten my day!  It’s true!

I used the NEW Misti Cut Align tool to cut the sentiment strip… I REALLY like having that tool!  Tools are everything!

Some enamel dots…

So then, cuz I had experimented and cut so many sunflowers in different colors, I decided to use the white cut!

I dry embossed the yellow flower head that’s behind the white outline die… I love how it looks, it just gives it a little roundness.  I glue it just in the center so the petals can kinda look free-ish.

A Distress Oxide background in Fossilized Amber and Peeled Paint using the cheap make up brushes to blend it on the card-base.  I’ll link to the ones the stamp company is selling but I’m using the cheap ones and love them!

A happy, cute card! 😀 We all need a little sunshine in-between rains these days!

The sentiment is from the same NEW set as above… I am loving this set! I had fun making these two cards!

Both cards are 4 ½ inches square.  You could mail this size in an A6 envelope or a 5 inch square one.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you’re enjoying the flowers in paper or in dirt!

poppystamps Spring Pots Shelves and Memory Box Lilly of the Valley Sprigs Circle Cards…

Smiling today and enjoying the Worlds Robotics competition in Detroit via live streaming on my own computer!  It’s kinda funny racing between the stamp room and the computer room because I still need to get stuff done around here! haha  One of our grandson’s is on the team from here and the older one that was on the team last year is helping. Three of their brothers/grandsons are dressed in their mascot shirts that Heather, our daughter made them.  So, yep, I’m smiling.

This card makes me happy too!  I die cut the new poppystamps Spring Pots Shelves die in white cardstock and colored it with Copic Sketch markers. I will tell you the colors but yes, I often start out with one set of colors and end up coloring over with another set.  *cross your eyes* lol  I started out with YG63 and 67 for the vines but decided to change it after coloring the one pot YG17 and 25.  So I quickly went over the vines with YG17… a new green color! ;D  YG17 and 25 are pretty much my go to green.

For pink it was RV21 and 23 I think.  Yellow is Y15 and 18 but I think I put a little YR18 in the veins.  The terra cotta color is YR18, E07 and E99.  The tealish blue is BG02 and 05. The tan pot is Y28.  The Shelves are E35 and 37.

I used a little white gel pen here and there for accents.

The sentiment is from the Memory Box Springtime Typewriter Sentiments clear stamp set and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

The dark blue panel is die cut with the largest die from the Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles and glued to a top folding A2 white cardbase.  I added 5 of the smallest size Doodlebug Sprinkles.  I love them!  The card is pretty fun without them though if you want a completely flat card for snail mailing. It will still mail with the sprinkles for one stamp but I put a piece of that super thin packing stuff on top of it.

Next card…

Using some of the 6×6 paper pad stash this time…yes it’s older.  Carta Bella Flora No 1 it’s called.  Start digging, you probably have it! hohoho

I trimmed out the Lily of the Valley Sprigs from the Circle die after cutting it and the watering can from white cardstock.  Then I added a little Copic coloring again.  Pinks RV13 and 14.  Greens YG63, 67 and 99.  Gray is W2 and 3.

I used some Nuvo Rosewater Jewel Drops to make some droplets. I made them on my craft sheet and then glued them on.

Nothing real earth shaking but I like it!  But who do you send a ‘do something nice everyday’ card to?!  hmmmm

Holler if you have any questions!  Links below to what I used to make these cards.

3 Memory Box Nautical Cards…

Hi everyone!  hey, the sentiment on this card works for me and blogging too! hehe  I’m still here!  I got caught up on a house project and wouldn’t you know, it took longer than I thought!  I have a list of those projects. ugh.  Sure feels good when you get something accomplished though!

Hang with me today…keep scrolling…3 cards to share with you!

I really love this anchor frame!  It’s so intricate and so fun in any color! It’s a new Memory Box die called Sailboat Frame.  When you get down to my 3rd card, I used the Sailboat part of the set too.

Here it’s very basic…well all three are pretty basic….adding the kraft color rope frame was genius though.  I was stuck at what it needed and bam it hit me.  Oh, I’m so thankful when that happens, otherwise something can sit on my desk forever!

I wanted to use the Memory Box Lighthouse Collage die again and thought it went so well with the frame.  I used a Memory Box Circle Basics die to cut out the Lighthouse Collage.

The sentiments on all three of my cards today are from the new Memory Box Oceanside Typewriter Sentiments stamp set.

I added the Memory Box Flying Gulls in the background, glued directly to the card.  The lighthouse and the circle part of the frame have mounting tape behind them. Nothing under the points/corners.

 

I actually started with this card, didn’t finish it, made the 3rd card, then made the blue card and finally made it back to this CAS white on navy blue card!

I used the Memory Box Lighthouse Collage die and the wood dock pieces from the Memory Box Beachfront Seagulls die.  I love the detail on the wood.  I die cut, leave the pieces in the die and rub over the backside of the card-stock with a stylus so the embossing detail from the die is more pronounced.  Then I ink it with Gathered Twigs Distress ink and a mini ink blending tool. Love that wood detail!

I die cut the panel with the Memory Box Rectangle Basics die, matted it on an A2 size navy blue panel and then on an A2 white card-base.

 

And here’s #3!  I used pattern paper. Rather playful, don’t you think?!  This is October Afternoon Seaside 8×8 paper pad.  Starlitstudio.net has a few pieces left in the store HERE from the 12 x 12 collection. Otherwise it is discontinued.  I’m sure if you’re like me, you have something in your stash that would be fun for something like this!  😀

The Sailboat Frame die set, using all the pieces this time, super cute sailboat, waves and clouds!  I love the frame die cut in this red wood paper! I die cut the greenish square mat with the Memory Box Square Basics die set.

I love that you get so many sizes with these Basics Shapes die sets and they work with all the Memory Box dies.

I’ll stop at 3 cards today!  eek! lol  Hope you had fun scrolling through and if you’re a lighthouse, beach, water person, you’re sure to find tons to love from Memory Box!

Thanks for stopping by!

Up To Snow Good! Last Snowmen for this Winter…

Hi everyone!  I say this every month don’t I?  How’d it get to be _________!  In this case, March!  I still have Winter new stuff to stamp and play with! haha  Add it to the stuff from other years, right?!  Anyway, this is to cute not to post quick!

This card and the tag coming up are from the Snow Buds set by Essentials By Ellen.

Pattern Paper is from Lawn Fawn.

Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles are a staple for me!  You can find them at Starlitstudio.net, HERE. (it looks like they’re out of stock, the link to contact Cindy is at the very top of the page, if you want to order them)

Doodlebug Twine, another staple… HERE.

I just love snow and snowmen and cute snowman sentiments!  AND in this case paper snowballs! ha

Then I cut so many, I made a tag quick too…still have a bunch for another go ’round.  ❤

I’ll just call him pail head!  I guess all the hats are being used. haha I had to add hearts for buttons.

The love tag is from poppystamps.

Little Boy Birthday Card and Some Valentine ATCs…

Family Birthday time Sunday afternoon!  This is our youngest grandson Charles. hehe. He doesn’t like his picture taken any better than Grandma does!

He loves playing in his kinetic dirt with this big machinery so I had to make a fitting birthday card for him. So cute!

I tore and inked (Gathered Twigs Distress ink) some kraft cardstock for the hills.  I sponged the clouds with Mermaid Lagoon Distress ink and a cloud stencil, it’s an old one, I think from Rosie’s Roadshow stamp co.

The panel is ATC size, 2.5 x 3.5 inches.  I matted it with black cardstock and stamped the Happy Birthday in the MISTI with Ranger Archival Black ink.

Loads of Love is from a Taylored Expressions stamp set, stamped in the MISTI with Ranger Archival Black ink also.

I used two Memory Box dies, one is still available, the Mighty Dump Truck.  The Little Dozer die is from 2016 and is now discontinued.  For some reason I ordered 3 of that die! ugh.  So I have one to sell if someone wants it $4. (EDA – SOLD)  Email me at the contact tab under the blog title at the top of the page. I can send it in a 5×7 envelope for one postage stamp I bet, unless you want tracking. Dump truck, links below.

We had a super fun party. Youngest and Oldest grandson’s birthdays and Valentines!  I’ll be back with oldest’s card another day.

Linking my birthday card to some challenges…

Seize the Birthday – anything goes

Addicted To Stamps and More – anything goes

HLS March CAS Challenge – special day

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – create a scene

Here’s some of the ATCs I made and gave to the grands for Valentines…

Thanks for stopping by today and letting me share what I’ve been up to! 😀

Stempelgarten Challenge and Memory Box Springtime Tulips and Wildflower Circle Card…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  It’s been awhile since I’ve been here on the blog!  EEK! It’s been a busy family February for me, all good!I’m excited to share that I’m a guest at the Stempelgarten Challenge blog this month.  I bet you can guess the theme just by looking at my card! If you said, Spring, you’re right!

My card uses two new Memory Box dies, Springtime Tulips, Wildflower Circle and the new stamp set, Springtime Typewriter Sentiments.

A little Tumbled Glass Distress inking in the background, then the dies cut in white and colored with Copic Markers. I did cut an extra frame (tulips) to help the Wildflower Circle be a little higher on the card.  I hand trimmed the tulips off the extra one though because I just wanted the frame.

The sentiment is stamped on the front with Ranger Archival black ink using the MISTI stamping tool.

You are invited to join in the challenge with a Spring creation until March 31st!   Click on over AND there’s a prize involved!  Here’s a picture and a link to the Stempelgarten online store.  So CUTE!

I think Spring is around the corner!  hehe  I know it is even though it was minus one when I got up this morning! lol

Linking up to some challenges….
